Words For Friends


I've been hand lettering a word per day for the past couple months to expand and refine my design skills. I was looking for momentum and a hook that would get my audience more interested and involved with my daily posting. I kicked the project off by asking people to post their favorite word in the comment section of my initial post. I figured I'd get a few to respond, but was surprised that in no time I had about 100 words on the list. By engaging my audience, and expressing a genuine interest in them, I was in a place to give them what they wanted. I get good practice and they each get a chance to be in the spot light for a day. It's turned out to be a happy routine for all.

If you improve your drawing skills you will become a better designer. Period.
